MY GOODWILL MESSAGE ON THE 2019 CHILDREN’S DAY CELEBRATIONS
On this auspicious 2019 Children’s Day celebrations, on behalf of the good people of Ikono Local Government Area, I join Akwa Ibom State Governor, His Excellency, Deacon Udom Emmanuel, to felicitate with all A’Ibom Children at home and in diaspora, on this unique Anniversary.
Let me take this opportunity to reassure our Children and Youths, that by the mandate of grace freely given to us, my administration is fully committed to fulfilling our promises of rebranding, reviving and rebuilding a better Ikono Local Government Area of our dreams.
On this eventful remembrance designed to honour our children, I reaffirm my belief, that it is the right of every Ikono child to have access to quality and affordable Education, good road network and other basic amenities of livelihood; all these can be possible only in God.
I also wish to pledge my unalloyed commitment to your safety, as we continue to do all needed to help you experience a more peaceful and secure environment, devoid of threat, insecurity and rancour.
Let me further place it on record, that good health and well-being of every Ikono child would at all times remain topmost priority on our agenda, as showcased in our free medical outreach from time to time, carried out to upgrade relatively poor health conditions faced by natives in Ikono.
As you celebrate this day, it is a charge that you remain assets to your parents, communities, Schools and our Country- Nigeria; knowing too well, that only on this path will you definitely become good Ambassadors for a better society.
Once again, my warmest regards. Hearty Congratulations!
Chairman, Ikono Local Government Council
